    Pros

    ASA has excellent benefits including a Defined Benefit pension plan as well as the equivalent of a profit sharing plan. You do not find those benefits at many private, for profit, companies. Salaries are above average and the educational benefits are very liberal. There are many hard working people in the ISD division and there is an opportunity to work with new technologies.

    Cons

    There are too many layers of management and often they do not communicate well. New Projects can get out of control which results in excess monies being spent to keep things on track . The group that maintains the core loan processing application is excellent and works well together. All in all I feel that ASA is an above average working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and get the politics out of the management team.
